Potential application of hydrogen in traumatic and surgical brain injury, stroke and neonatal hypoxia-ischemia. Medical gas research Eckermann, J. M., Krafft, P. R., Shoemaker, L., Lieberson, R. E., Chang, S. D., Colohan, A. 2012; 2 (1): 11-?


This article summarized findings of current preclinical studies that implemented hydrogen administration, either in the gas or liquid form, as treatment application for neurological disorders including traumatic brain injury (TBI), surgically induced brain injury (SBI), stroke, and neonatal hypoxic-ischemic brain insult (HI). Most reviewed studies demonstrated neuroprotective effects of hydrogen administration. Even though anti-oxidative potentials have been reported in several studies, further neuroprotective mechanisms of hydrogen therapy remain to be elucidated. Hydrogen may serve as an adjunct treatment for neurological disorders.
